  • shadow multiple FIs of equal or higher level to you in their department;
  • learn about the challenges facing FIs in the NCR;
  • network with FIs in the NCR;
  • meet with ACFO staff and elected officials;
  • and more.

For FIs in the NCR, you’ll be hosted for five days by FIs in regional offices. In this program, you’ll:

“I was able to draw parallels between what I saw with job shadowing and my own work – we share similar struggles within our line of work. I also got some good ideas from the job shadowing sessions that I am hoping to bring back to my own workplace,” a former program participant said.

There are four weeks in this year’s program for which you’ll be eligible to apply:
